My Favourite Red Dresses

By Anna Bance, Co-Founder of Girl Meets Dress

I don’t know about you, but I love wearing red dresses at this time of the year.
Last week I wore this Carven red bodycon dress for a night out at The Box in Soho,London.

Tomorrow night I plan to wear this red lace dress by HONOR GOLD to a dinner. I love trying the new dresses which arrive at Girl Meets Dress HQ and lace is everywhere as a trend right now. I find I am choosing more dresses with sleeves for evening events as they are more comfortable and warm without needing to add a jacket or shawl.

With just 2 weeks to go until Valentine’s Day 2013, we are  wondering what to wear and so we asked our founder Anna to give us her suggestions  - whether you are spending the evening with a partner, family, or friends. ROMANTIC DINNER

If your guy has planned a dinner somewhere, you’ll need a dress which is comfortable to sit in, focuses on the top half (since that is what he’ll see all evening) and that doesn’t crease. I usually like to go for a sleeved dress for restaurants as it can be chilly. Otherwise take a shawl which can also be useful to place over your legs should your skirt be on the short side when you sit.

I would wear one of these:

DINNER PARTY AT HOME

A fun thing to do on the 14th is gather together some friends, single and couples for a dinner party. Many couples don’t like the idea of a candlelit restaurant on this one day of the year, filled with other cheesy couples – so hosting a relaxed and fun evening gives everyone a fun alternative. If you are cooking then you’ll need a dress that is not too short (otherwise wear tights) and that is easy to move in. Remember to wear an apron until you sit down to eat – but wow your guests through dinner with a special number.

I would wear one of these:

COCKTAILS WITH FRIENDS

If you are single and can’t wait to party the night away with the eligable men in town, you’ll need a striking dress which will make you stand out. Lets face it, competition is high on this night. Remember that not all men understand some high fashion trends so don’t scare them off with something unflattering (save those for the girls) With men, classic and demure sexy is best.

CINEMA AND DRINKS WITH YOUR MAN

Chances are that catching a movie with your partner is high on the Valentine’s date suggestions list. It can get cold in the  cinema so take a jumper / shawl. If you are grabbing a bite to eat or a cocktail afterwards, then go for something which doesn’t crease after you’ve been sitting all evening. This is your chance to wow… as you have been sitting in the dark so far.

Ask Anna: Mother of The Bride

Every week, we receive many emails with interesting questions and concerns from our GMD customers. For this particular post, we decided to round up this week’s most popular questions with personalized answers from our CEO, Anna Bance, in order to make your renting experience a more enjoyable one, and so you don’t find yourself dressless for this summer’s most glamorous occasions.

 

My beautiful daughter is getting married this September and I am having trouble finding something to wear. I would like to look attractive, but since I have quite large breasts I need to find a style that is flattering and not too revealing. Could you recommend me a dress?

This is a familiar problem and we completely understand your desires to want to look respectful and beautiful, as it will be as much your day as it will be your daughters! A common mistake for the mother of the bride is to dress either too young, or too old, when really there is no option more suited to the occasion than classic, timeless elegance. Keep an open mind however, as now is the time to wear something out of the ordinary.

My first suggestion for you would be this stunning satin dress by Erdem, which balances a youthful, feminine print with a flattering high neck line and long sleeves.

Alternatively, this dress, from our go to designer Diane Von Fustenburg’s, who always has something flattering and chic no matter your size or age. This black and white silk blend dress will take you seamlessly from day-to-night and would look fantastic with a trench coat.

Lastly, for something a little less traditional, how about trying this comfortably long dress in sensational coral red, wonderful for enhancing honey color skin tones. Match this dress with gold or coral jewelery to complete the look.

p.s Remember that we also stock hats to rent for the big day, and if you need help matching your dress to the perfect style we are always on hand to help thegirls@girlmeetsdress.com
